Defeat at West Ham – It’s the manner rather than the result that irritates

That was a pretty miserable night last night, if truth be told. I made the schlep all the way to the other side of London, to that soulless bowl of a stadium, having had to virtually sprint at every stage coming from West London as I had an over-running work event that I had to [...]

Before I talk about the game tonight, a word on FIFA, the most corrupt organisation I have ever seen, who yesterday confirmed that Saudi Arabia had won the rights to host the 2034 World Cup after nobody else bid for it. Nobody. Really. So one of the most prestigious tournaments on the planet, that generates [...]

How does Arteta prepare for West Ham on Wednesday?

Given that Arsenal played on Saturday, I did something I don't always normally do, in watching the other kick offs that were on Sky Sports yesterday. Usually when Arsenal aren't on, I'll find something else to do with The Management and as a result I'm not usually by a TV, but yesterday I was hanging [...]

What a way to start off a day - with bloody COVID. Well, at least Arsenal are away this weekend and so there is at least that up side that I'm not going to miss going to a game this weekend. It's scuppers a few socialising plans I have but such is life. I move [...]

Morning folks, how we all doing? Feeling gravy? So...this week is a week for finding out about some of our opponents in some of the cup competitions we'll be playing midweek between now and the end of the year and last night we got confirmation of the opponents we face in the League Cup at [...]

Patched up Arsenal go out down in the League Cup

Sigh. Double sigh. That's it for our domestic cup campaigns and we find ourselves out of them both within the space of two weeks. It is frustrating, but for some reason, I am reeling even more than I thought I would this morning. I think it is because in my mind I'd built up this [...]

Should Arteta switch the formation up against Liverpool?

Blimey. Talk about so much #content you don't know where to even start, eh? Yesterday we got Mikel Arteta's press conference and there were some spicy and fantastic words said by the manager. Then we had wind of a bid from a Saudi Arabian team for Aubameyang. That was followed by the rumours of betting [...]

How much do Arsenal NEED the League Cup to start an era?

You know when you have those dreams that feel so real, that you wake up in the morning, then you feel an emotion based on that dream that is really strong? It could be positive or negative. Well, I had an Arsenal one of those last night, about the League Cup game against Liverpool. Unfortunately [...]

Pride from a resolute Arsenal performance against Liverpool

This will most likely be a very short ‘check in’ post today, because it was the wife’s birthday yesterday and so a) I didn’t watch the game yesterday as we had a family meal, and b) I’m blogging on my phone for about 10 minutes before we have to drive home. But by all accounts [...]
